The recent poker phenomenon
has no gender barriers, and no
age barriers. You can play in
free tournaments and win real
prizes and tournament entries.
You can play at most online
poker rooms for pennies,
nickels, and dimes, and you
can play at home in your
recliner.

Explosive Growth of
Poker
Anthony Sangenito

The question of whether the recent dramatic increase in poker play is a fad or
is here to stay is a legitimate one. I love to play poker. I play poker online
quite often, and visit Atlantic City and Las Vegas as often as possible to play
poker. I especially enjoy sitting in my recliner in the comfort of my own home
and playing in cash games and tournaments in various online poker rooms.

There have been many instances in which the “in” thing to do fades away,
such as with fashion, or even lifestyles. People sometimes do change their
habits and customs over time. The recent boom in poker play is a
phenomenon. Just a couple of years ago, no one knew who Daniel Negreanu
was, let alone the likes of Chris Moneymaker, who is often referred to as the
“Godfather of the Poker Revolution”. The thought of winning millions of
dollars from a small investment into a satellite tournament has enticed many
to try their hand at playing online and live poker tournaments. Almost all of
the online poker sites, as well as land-based poker rooms, are running
satellite tournaments to win a seat into the World Series of Poker (WSOP)
Main Event and World Poker Tour (WPT) events. You can even win a free seat
into the main event at many poker rooms online.

Historically, poker players were generally thought of as criminals and
degenerates. Now the very same players, like Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson,
are regarded as professional poker players, and are being offered
endorsements from major corporations and online poker rooms. No one could
ever have imagined such a transformation just a few years ago. I believe
that poker is definitely here to stay. The evidence is overwhelming. My
grandmother plays poker, my parents play poker, I play poker, and my
teenage nephew and his friends play poker. This phenomenon has no gender
barriers, and no age barriers. You can play in free tournaments and win real
prizes and tournament entries. You can play at most online poker rooms for
pennies, nickels, and dimes, and you can play at home in your recliner. What
more could you ask for...in my opinion the future potential for poker is
unlimited.
